"The Night Garden gallery is an opportunity to see the most beautiful facet of natural world in an other worldly light. The images in the gallery were all created through the lens making use of nothing but flowers, light and film."

Breakfast in the Regency Era and their Definition of Morning
It seems the modern hegemony of morning, illogically coming after the invention of electric light, is related to the increased power of the lower classes. In the days of servants, servants had to rise early to cook breakfast, light fires, and otherwise make the house ready for their employers, while upper class people slept later. "The Regency definition of morning differed vastly from ours. Visiting hours were kept at set times. A family might receive visitors on Tuesdays and Thursdays, for example, or on Wednesday, between 11 AM to 3 PM. These hours were considered morning hours. When Anne Elliot arrived at Uppercross Cottage at 1:00 PM, she considered the time to be early in the morning."
As with so many mistakes of the modern world, rather than making the privileges of the upper classes available to all (when we easily could), we have denied them to all. Instead of allowing all classes to keep healthy, pleasant aristocratic hours, all classes are forced to conform to lower-class hours.
